Akamai announces Adobe Flash Media Server 3.5 support

Akamai Technologies has announced support for Adobe Flash Media Server 3.5 on the Akamai streaming network, adding dynamic streaming and other enhancements to its Flash streaming capabilities.

These features are designed to allow publishers and content owners to deliver higher-quality video experiences and embrace long-form content distribution. Dynamic streaming is a new feature in Adobe Flash Media Server 3.5 that seamlessly switches between different quality versions of a single video stream to deliver the optimal viewing experience for the consumer.

The new dynamic streaming capabilities will allow Flash-based video players to dynamically shift to end-user machines with different capabilities, such as lower processing power or slower Internet connections.

The solution is expected to be commercially available by the end of the second quarter of 2009.
